In this work, Bolotowsky's interest in exploring pure geometric form and color is clear. The artist was profoundly influenced by Piet Mondrian and his Neo-Plasticism, which it shows in Bolotowsky's experimentation with non-objective representation. His work of the 1970s, like this one, tended not to conform to the shape of the page but, at the same time, still strove for harmony and equilibrim. This screenprint is part of a series of four prints produced as a portfolio.Physical Description
At the center of the screenprint, there is a blue diamond shape interspersed with black rectangles. Thin white lines and yellow and red lines also run throughout the larger diamond shape. The print is signed (l.r.) "Ilya Bolotowsky" and numbered (l.l.) "154/225" in pencil.Primary Object Classification Print Primary Object TypeabstractCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
